On 23rd September, 6 Secondary students flew to Hong Kong to represent BSB at the FOBISIA Advanced Orchestra Festival hosted by Discovery Bay International School. They spent 3 days rehearsing very difficult pieces with other FOBISIA students under the baton of a professional conductor and performed in a concert on Monday evening. The performance included some amazing guests such as musicians from the Hong Kong Philharmonic, and it was amazing! It is so wonderful to see students working hard and being proud of the result. Some quotes from the performers:
“I get a special feeling every time we finish the Tchaikovsky!”
“I can’t believe that professional musicians played with us! They are so good!”
Please see the videos from the concert here.
